Dark Sector


Published 2011


Dark Sector is a third-person, over-the-shoulder, cover-based, hyphenated-word shooter developed by Digital Extremes, the same people who made Unreal Tournament. Originally announced in February of 2000, it quickly fell into development hell and went unheard of for years where it shifted wildly between being an Unreal Tournament-style arena shooter, a space-based survival horror and finally settling on being a Russian dismemberment simulator. The game, while a great deal of fun, had the bad luck to be released around the same time as other gritty and overly melodramatic shooters such as Gears of War and Resistance 2, so when it failed to be exactly like them everyone complained. So now it falls to me to show you just what you've been missing out on.

The story follows Hayden Tenno, an angsty and not terribly bright cleanup agent for the CIA who is sent into the fictional former-Soviet Bloc nation of Lasria to find and kill an evil scientist who is developing biological weapons. Very quickly, however, the evil scientist captures Tenno and infects him with the same virus that Tenno was sent to stop from spreading, the Technocyte Virus. Tenno quickly devolves into an insane monster and- wait. No, that's what happens to everyone else who gets infected. Instead, Tenno gets rapidly evolving superpowers and chooses to complain about it just because.
